|Last Logged in 4 weeks ago|
I have recently moved over to Australia, I'm currently living in CBD Sydney and am planning to stay here for 1 year.
I worked full time at a day nursery in both the baby and young children units. On a daily basis I helped and cared for on average 15 children aged between 2 and 4 ˝ years (with the assistance of 3 other Nursery Practitioners). I also worked in the baby unit and I am comfortable in changing nappies and making sure the children are clean and tidy.
My duties included preparing meals for the children (including breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks) and supervising whilst they ate their meals. It was also my responsibility to maintain the tidiness of the nursery, ensuring it was a safe environment for the children to play and enjoy their day.
Throughout the day I carried out a number of learning activities with the children including singing and reading. We often sang songs about the alphabet, days of the week and months of the year as these act as a learning tool. Some days we conducted role play and dressing up with children and would often act out various life scenarios including going on holiday, a trip to the shops etc. This would help develop the children's language and communication skills.
I also helped to organise more hands on activities throughout the day and I often organised and completed “messy play” with the children. This can include painting, drawing, colouring, cutting and sticking. On a day-to-day basis we also carried out music and movement. This helps to keep the children active as they have the opportunity to use different musical instruments, dance and sometimes we carried out some light aerobic exercises.
My responsibilities also included reading to the children during story time and carrying out some literacy and numeracy activities. I also supervised the children whilst they played outside in the garden. Overall, it was my responsibility to ensure the children were happy, well looked after, are comfortable and enjoy their day at nursery.
I enjoyed my time at Burstead Bears however when my Brother emigrated to Australia it gave me the opportunity to visit him and experience Australia.
